Galaxy S8+ likely to account for more than 50% of all sales

A new report out of South Korea predicts that the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ is going to account for more than 50 percent of combined sales for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The model with the larger display is expected to sell better compared to its 5.8-inch sibling.

Yuanta Securities Korea Co. released a new report today predicting that the annual combined sales of the Galaxy S8 are going to hit 50.4 million units with the Galaxy S8+ accounting for 27.1 million units or 53.9 percent of all sales.

Industry analysts predict that this will be due to the rising demand for larger screens as users prefer those for consuming multimedia content and mobile gaming. Customer preference has sided with models that have larger displays for the previous Galaxy flagships as well. The edge models of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 both had larger displays and outsold their smaller siblings.

Increased sales of the larger model are beneficial for Samsung as the higher margins on these devices will lead to increased profitability for the company.

Its a brilliant phone that’s why! I’ve had mine for a few days now and I was asked to post my findings on the battery. and I am getting 4 hours of screen on time at QHD+ around 40 mins of online gaming, mostly on Wi-Fi. was on 4G half the day and was constantly online messaging for a good 90mins. Cast YouTube to my TV for an hour and listened to music for 2. I normally charge my phone at 30%, and it was around 25% when it reached the 4 hour screen on time. What I was really… Read more »

Of course 4% is good with all the Google activities in the background, LG said 7-11% is normal over night.
